So ppls, there are lot of ppls believe that consoles in 90s were better gaming. most of ppls nastolgic about it. and say console 90 gaming was peak of gaming. how amaizing it was, industry would not be without them but i beg to differ. Console gaming in 90s were great because it was pure console gaming not dumbed down PC gaming
but take a look at from begining
both games were release at same years. PC gaming was already 3D at the time. Playstation 1 didnot create 3d graphics
1998 arguably the best year ever.
Look at Half life 1. and than thief. Halflife 1 was ahead of its time. it was 1998 graphics king too. but in a term of gameplay level design it was very much ahead of its time. and thief was best and most revolutionary stealth game of ever
same year we see
now look at console games of 1998. they definetely were best console games of 1998 but cant hold a candle against Half life or thief. and from the look of it they feel like generation behind. and i remember on MGS1 dead body disapear after you shot someone. this thing were never happen in thief.
now lets move to 2007 which was another one of the greatest year and what we see?
Console shooter that is scripted, linear, regen health and nothing but corridor crawler
PC shooters were creative, have exploration, not scripted and push genre forward.
theres lot more example but im too lazy for more. so ppls does that evidence that console always generation behind PC?
